An entertaining tale of detection and maritime adventure in an action-packed mystery surrounding Nazi war treasure from the acclaimed author of A Flock of Ships and Ferry Down.

The myth of the Stollenberg convoy was one of the most enduring of World War II. As the Third Reich began to crumble, orders were sent out from Berlin to find hiding places for the countless treasures that had been looted from all over Europe. According to the myth, the most precious item was entrusted to an SS officer, Manfred Stollenberg, but before it reached its destination it mysteriously disappeared. Ever since, rumours of the treasure's existence have fascinated military historians and treasure hunters alike.

Merchant sailor Michael Kyle first learns about the story from his historian flatmate Dr David McDonald, who was obsessed with the case. When Kyle returns from a spell at sea only for McDonald to die in an unusual accident, he refuses to believe the official explanation. The more he looks into the recent out-of-character activities of his old friend, the more convinced he becomes that there is a connection with the Stollenberg myth - and that his own life is in grave danger.
